The 15th WCTR was conducted at IIT Bombay from 26th May to 31st May.
The Department of Civil Engineering at IIT Bombay organized the 15th World Conference on Transport Research (WCTR) from 26th May to 31st May 2019 at the campus. For the last 40 years, WCTR has been organized every three years by the WCTR Society. The conference aims to bring together academics, practitioners, managers, and policymakers from all parts of the world, to share cutting-edge research and advanced state-of-practice relating to transport. The conference also includes special sessions, technical tours, an exhibition, and social events. This knowledge event provides a unique opportunity for experts to exchange ideas in all areas of transport research.
To facilitate the interchange of ideas between researchers working in the same area, WCTR has structured the topics into nine categories with a total of 35 session tracks. For many session tracks, close cooperation with partner journals has been announced (with more to follow shortly), so that the best papers from the review track can be published in leading peer-reviewed transportation journals after the Conference.
